South Florida According to Brooklyn: I'm Still Not Down With Animal Cruelty

A few months ago I wrote about the new anti-tether law that Joe Sanchez got approved in Miami-Dade County this past March. That was a step in the right direction to protect who can't speak for themselves. That was real progress. Which is why I'm even more pissed off, in contrast, at the return of Michael Vick.

Can someone please explain to me how a man convicted of over 15 deaths of harmless animals is free so soon? And how and the hell is he playing in the NFL again? The board of directors for NFL should be embarrassed of themselves. Vick has been brought to court and convicted
by a jury of his peers, and he doesn't deserve to play pro football again. In fact, he should still be behind bars -- if those were human deaths, he'd be on death row.

And for the Philadelphia Eagles to even allow this piece of of garbage onto their practice field.... They should be mortified. Vick is a torturer and a killer, plain and simple, and I really have no more to say about it.

Five Albums I'm Listening to This Week:
1) American Nightmare, The Sun Isn't Getting Any Brighter. 2) Avail, Live at the Bottom of the Hill. 3) NWA, Straight Outta Compton. 4) Ramallah, But a Whimper. 5) Refused, Everlasting.

Quote of the Week: "How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours."
